BTW WG....I am expecting a sweet British or Soviet Tier 8 Premium Battleship before those lines are released. 

 

Don't release some t4-7 nonsense. Time to release the good stuff.

Warspite in tier 6 is perfectly fine. Rumor has it Hood in tier 7 is coming soon.

 

Russia never built anything that could pass tier 5, so be prepared for 5 tiers of complete fantasy culminating in a tier 10 monstrosity with 51cm guns and the most trollish armor imaginable, specifically designed to abuse every game mechanic it can to be the best ship in the game, while having token weaknesses that are greatly overshadowed by its insane strengths.

 

Just like the cruiser and destroyer lines.

I can't wait to see what comes. I hope the french cruisers are fun. But I'm looking forward to some steller high tier ships.

I was gonna talk to her, but Khabarovsk, Moskva, Nikolai, Budyonny, Molotov, Kutuzov, Chapyev, Donskoi, Kiev, Grozevoi, Ognevoi, and Uldaoi took her behind the shed earlier and I haven't seen her since.

 

I wanted to look but Murmansk and Gremyaschchy kept me from going.

Oh, I saw her. She came back out with 200mm of side plating.

Be careful what you wish for...

We have one excellent premium T8 BB right now, and one incoming which depending to whom you ask isn't exactly stellar.

I'd rather have a "T7 Scharnhorst"-type than a "T8 Alabama"-type for example.

 

 

Russia never built anything that could pass tier 5, so be prepared for 5 tiers of complete fantasy culminating in a tier 10 monstrosity with 51cm guns and the most trollish armor imaginable, specifically designed to abuse every game mechanic it can to be the best ship in the game, while having token weaknesses that are greatly overshadowed by its insane strengths.

 

Indeed... which will probably make the future Russian T8 premium BB a total beast, well worth the asking money.

Looking forward to Hood a lot tho.  A tier 7 with 2x2 torpedo tubes, good speed(28-31) and WarSpite-grade guns (good dispersion), maybe with UK agility only found in the WarSpite so far (tho longer ship so maybe 650m instead of 560) is quite an interesting prospect.  Even if not armored as much, it's far more forgivable at tier7 than tier8.  Yup, can't wait for that one.

There aren't really any good options I know of for either unfortunately.

Fight me. Shchors is a fantastic and borderline OP cruiser capable of face rolling tier 9 BBs and DDs.

I'd love to see a premium Duke of York, that would make a nice bookend for Scharnhorst.

It's just a rumor. I can't even recall my source so take it with a grain of salt and save hype for a more official announcement.

Russian BB line? They have a 3, 4, and 8/9. There are no Russian BBs, there was barely a Soviet navy. There are about 15 lines I'd rather see ahead of that.

Plenty of options for British tier 7/8 premium BB. I might initially look at some of the preliminary designs to N3 (though they were likely a bit too large), but am intrigued by the thought of a modernized U4 from 1914.

The good stuff stops at T7.  Everything else gets pulled into T10 campfests.

 There may be more Roo-Shin Warships in WoW's tech tree and premium shop than there were in real life during the first half of the 20th Century.

Premium BB - British/Russian

 

HMS Royal Sovereign / Arkhangelsk? I have no idea if the Russian put a special camo on the ship, or the British put it there when she served in the Soviet Navy.

It's not just a rumour, the ship's identifier was posted by a member of WG staff on the RU forums in a thread about customising audio files ingame.

I'm mean, it's not Russian or British, but Roma is coming next as far as Premium BBs goes... (After 'Bama)

Given that in the post on the RU forums that seemed to indicate all the ship identifiers in the game currently and that the Roma was not mentioned at all in that list, I have some doubts about when exactly she's coming.

My guess would put her in the summer, but WG definitely said she'd be coming, with the statement 'not before 'Bama'

It will be glorious, Comrade!
